    We are visiting this October and plan on attending the Festival of Fantasy parade but was wondering if we have to purchase tickets separately or does the Meal and voucher dining package count as a Table Service credit on the Disney Dining Plan? Thanks!

    Hi Jennifer,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! October is a lovely time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort. The Festival of Fantasy Parade Dining Package will be such a fun experience! While you do need to make an Advanced Dining Reservation for this package, you can use the Disney Dining or Deluxe Dining Plans for this meal. It will require one table-service credit for each person 3-years old or older in your party. While the reservation system will ask for a credit card to guarantee your reservation, your card will not be charged unless you do not show for the meal and do not cancel in advance. Please review the restaurants' cancellation policies as you make your advanced dining reservations.

    I do hope you have considered purchasing tickets to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! If so, remember that separate admission is required for this event.

    As always, I suggest that you utilize the My Disney Experience tool to link your resort, dining, and Fast Pass+ reservations. 

    Happy Planning!
